In season you'll be accompanied by masses. But in bad weather the hike might be dangerous... it's a rather challenging walk and if you're not moderately fit I do not recommend it. Throughout the hike you are constantly rewarded with fantastic views, though. And there...More

The entire tour of the peninsula was amazing, with the Old Man of Storr being one of them. There is a hiking trail up to it, if you want a closer look. It is clearly seen from the road too.

Pictures don't do it justice. Take your time and walk around the small paths to each side of the Old Man for even better views.

Made a trip here from Portree and although a cloudy day still worth seeing! There is plenty of parking along the road besides the small off road parking lot. Nice hiking trail with an initial steep climb that soon levels out.

Having heard so much about this landmark nd seen tv of climbers, it was great to see the old man in person. We did not make the hike but just taking in the view from the car park was a special experience.

Parts of the track are quite steep, but we all managed to do it okay, given we are all 60+. The track itself is quite long but you can easily decide when you have seen enough, or think that it is becoming a bit too...More

My wife and I just went up today. It took her 1.5 hours return at 72 and not a hill walker. For me it is 1.25 hours.
